Starting young: Manulife offers financial literacy 101 to grade 6 students
It’s never too early to start learning finance and investments.
Insurance provider Manulife Philippines has teamed up with the volunteer group Hands On Manila (HOM) to conduct a series of lectures on saving and investing.
Under the Peso Smart program, Manulife employees will be teaching grade six students in pilot schools in Nueve de Febrero and Plainview in Mandaluyong, and Pembo in Makati. The sessions will be conducted together with HOM partners during the school year 2017-2018.
“Teaching children the importance of saving and investing at a young age can help them make the right financial decisions as they get older. Having these financial skills at a young age will help them achieve these goals – not just for themselves, but also for their families,” Ryan Charland, President and CEO of Manulife Philippines, said in a statement.
Today’s kids will be the investors of the future.
